I hope everybody is enjoying summer holiday! I was very surprised when I moved to Japan that students are very busy even in holiday time, in Australia we have no homework, club or school activities in our holidays, it’s a very nice and relaxing time to spend with our family and friends. Usually we are swimming or having a barbecue or maybe visiting the beach.

In Australia, summer is in December/ January, and the school year ends before summer holidays, so it’s a very exciting time for kids, we have Christmas and New Year (and my birthday, haha), and from January the new school year begins.

This photo is the sunset from the front yard of my family home near Christmas time. The sunset in Australia is usually very vivid and beautiful. I hope everyone can have some time to relax and be with their family as well as doing homework and studying 🙂 Enjoy your holidays!
